At the end of the hearing, Rose, reading from the same old Joel Klein script, detailed the reasons JHS 145 must close. Shades of the old DOE ghoul, John White.
Farina recently talked about public education while she and her crew are actually helping Trump and DeVos put a stake in the heart of pubed with their incompetent management of the system --- as Leonie pointed out yesterday - Leonie: The egregious failure of DOE's Renewal program - and the likely illegal proposal to close JHS 145
Also see the New York Times piece on the crap going on over at Townsend Harris --- see the student response to their reporting being branded "fake news" by a DOE official, who should be demoted to the classroom.
And a few more pics from the crew at Monday's hearing:

Even the ability to get more students of color in the top schools have been a failure:
Four years after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio railed against the way students are admitted to some of the city’s top high schools on the campaign trail, black and Hispanic students are still rarely accepted into the elite schools. Only 10 percent of offers at specialized schools went to black and Hispanic students, even though those populations comprise about 70 percent of city students.
